Vai, the guy operates on a completely different level than everyone else. And although I love Satch, his words and suggestions have never impacted me as much as a single sentence from Vai, the guy is just amazing.

I agree with Brett, everything Vai says is just inspiring. When it comes to music, I think Satch's music is "easier" to listen to in most cases. It's hard to decide, they both wrote great songs.

How could you put these two guys against each other ??? It's blasphemy ! ohmy.gif

Just kidding tongue.gif

Vai is wacky and wonderful and Joe is just very tasteful.. in terms of listening experience I would choose Mr Satriani smile.gif

Really hard decision, but I give a slight advantage to Satriani because of his beautiful melodic phrases smile.gif

Well considering the fact that Satriani's students included: Steve Vai, Kirk Hammett of Metallica, David Bryson of Counting Crows, Kevin Cadogan from Third Eye Blind, Larry LaLonde of Primus / Possessed, Alex Skolnick of Testament, Rick Hunolt (ex-Exodus), Phil Kettner of Lääz Rockit, Geoff Tyson of T-Ride, Charlie Hunter and David Turin.

On top of that, something about Steve Vai's antics on stage annoys me. I am glad he cut his hair. Damn that infernal fan of his.

I will have to be a rebel and do this, though.

Jason Becker +1

That man will always have my vote. His song, "Altitudes" moves me more than any other guitar instrumental out there.

Whoa, difficult one!!!
Playing-wise my vote goes with Satch, but I love Steve's wisdom and also his sense of humour!!!

I don't think at this level of musicians it's possible to compare or say who is better! For me Vai is more interesting and creative, but Satriani is more melodic he doesn't have to show off he is Satriani and that's it!

Been a Satch fan all along. While I like just few songs by Vai (they sound just too technical with all his effects), I love most of Satch stuff. Pure music (very rare effects). And mostly Satch sounds just better on the ears despite his songs might not include crazy shred stuff.

I"d say they are both a "favorite" smile.gif It's like choosing between two things you love for different reasons. But a great question which has stimulated some really good conversation.

The cd i like the most of Vai is " the seventh song" wich is a collection of his ballads. The other songs seems to me that are just a show of technical abilities. I think that the techique he uses is the same of Satch (in fact it is almost the same school, at the beginning Vai teaches Satriani) but Satch has the ablities to make appears his guitar tremendous skill less technical and more song-releated.
